“When 2020 started one of my biggest goals was to support more black owned businesses. But it was surprisingly difficult to find and tell what businesses in the city are TRULY black owned. So I created Black Owned Toronto, in hopes of discovering more black owned businesses.
I wanted a safe space for black people to showcase and share their work. I created a one stop shop for all shopping/service needs. I was amazed by how quickly the platform grew, and how much support every business I posted received! I will continue my work as a black business activist and continue working to see black businesses flourish.”
